a look at medicare. the largest single -- going to be the largest single social insurance program we have in our nation before this plan. the biggest change to that program ever actually happened 38 years after the program was introduced in 2003, when president obama introduced a drug benefit into the plan. but that took legislative approval. i don't see any way that we can fix this law, fix the things that are wrong with it, until congress finally gets away -- until the republicans get away from a position of just trying to defeat it to actually trying to fix it. >> jonathan gruber, economics proffer at m.i.t., former adviser to the white house, that was an intensely clarifying discussion for me tonight. thanks for being here. >>> lots to come tonight, including a crash course on how to be really, really bad at the job of former president of the united states. it's a job not that many people have it, but now we know what it looks like to stink at that job. stay with us. the secret is out. hydration is in.
